Prostitutes substantiate Mosley's story UPDATE This Echo News article talks about the News Of the World defending itself in court today by saying the film of Mosley definitely had a Nazi theme. Quite an interesting read. What's clear is that Mosley was set up but he took the bait and is now paying the price. The argument really comes down to this - was this a private affair and did anyone have the right to film it and did News of the World have the right to publish the photos and a story of the content.
07/08/08 Four women who took part in sadomasochistic role-playing with motor racing chief Max Mosley told a court Tuesday that the event was not the “Nazi-themed orgy” described in a tabloid newspaper.
Mosley, 68, is suing the News of the World for invasion of privacy over a March story that alleged he attended a five-hour sex session in which participants played concentration camp inmates and guards.
Mosley, the son of late British fascist leader Oswald Mosley, acknowledges a lifelong interest in sadomasochism, but said Monday that he found the idea of Nazi sex fantasies abhorrent. He said he and the women acted out a German prison scenario, but without any Nazi aspect.
On Tuesday, one of the women — labeled “Mistress Switch” by the newspaper — told the High Court that she organized “spanking parties” attended by Mosley, whom she knew as Mike.
The woman, whose identity is protected by a court order and was called “A” in court, said Mosley was “an extremely charming, mild-mannered and interesting man.” She denied there were Nazi overtones to their activities.
“I would not contemplate putting on such scenes, which I would find distasteful, and I would expect most people to be disgusted at the suggestion of a Nazi theme and respond similarly,” she said.
She said that S&M role-play was “like children playing Cowboys and Indians, it's adults having fun.”
Another woman, identified as “D,” said the scenario they acted out that day was a “prison fantasy.”
“I did not see anything Nazi,” she said. More at Globe and Mail [Related Article]
